I went to the fog doctor in Searcy Arkansas he is pretty well known with a lot of posts on IRV about the quality of his work. If your windows cannot be cleaned and resealed he makes a new one out of glass. This window has to be sent to Memphis Tennessee to be tempered and then it has to be DOT certified, this is done in Memphis also. You cannot just put regular tempered glass in there it has to have a DOT certification on it.

I also have this problem. I have a 2002 Brave 32ft. The window that is fogged up is the passenger "door" window. This makes it very hard to see the side view mirror. I can't seem to find the part numbers or the catalog. Does anyone know of a good glass place in the Chicagoland area? TIA

I have the same.problem, have a appointment rv glass repair in Greensboro n.c. for this coming Wednesday. I live nearby, taking the rig to him.

Check out their website, they offer a you send him the window option and he fixes and return, or if he already has your template he can just send you a new window (models he has done before) or, you can make a template mail to him and he will send you a window.

I will report back on how it goes.

Status report

Just got home from Greensboro, N.C. having my windows de-fogged at RV Glass Repair.

The short story is I had 4 windows done (5 if you consider one window was 2 peace slider that opened) and they all look great at this point. They use a new seal, that is supposed to be better, time will tell. The cost was $1,044.00.

The customer service wasn't great, promissed I would get in and out in a day, however through out the day they kept working on other customers stuff. At the end of the day they told me I had to stay over. We had discussed the possible need for a second day, if they had trouble removing my dash top to get to the side window screws, or if any of my glass needed replacing (if the fogging is left unattended, repeated wet and dry cycles can stain the glass requiring replacement). None of my glass required replacement, the dash tuned out to be easy. I made an appointment 3 weeks in advance, felt they should have completed my work.

Today they completed my work in about 2 - 2 1/2 hours, and it looked like if they stayed on my coach yesterday they could have been done and I could have been home.

They did provide a 50amp hookup for my stayover onsite.

Its great to have a clear view out the drivers side windows.

Just as information, got a quote from Dave Root in Bend, Or of $385 to do the main double window behind our sofa which started fogging in December. Would cost more if glass were etched and needing replacement! And no sales tax!!

That is about the same, I had 5 windows done, a single very large frame with 4 glass units next to the driver, then a different window on the other side that was 2 glass peices.

Removing the units was not a big deal, if they can get directly to the screws, no cabinets, window coverings in the way. Taking each glass unit apart, cuting the sealer, cleaning all that up, and then resealing etc took time per glass unit, not a fast thing. Labor intensive.

Dave Root did our windows last year - he drove down to San Jose and met me in my storage yard. Did 5 windows in about 6 hours and did a great job! I recommend him to anybody on the west coast!

So Far, I have not been able to learn how to start a new topic on this Yahoo Group Forum. Please excuse me for jumping on this thread but I wanted all to know about my experience at the RV FOG DR in Searcy, AR.

Of all the places I have taken my coach to have work done, the RV FOG DR has been my FAVORITE.

RV FOG DR does what they say they will do. The QUALITY of their work is OUTSTANDING! And even better is the QUALITY of the people who work here.

I have been here 4 nights with full hookup and 50 Amp power. The sites are level, easy to access and you feel safe here. The lighting at night is excellent.

If you have windows that need de-fogging, Searcy Arkansas is worth the drive. The folks next to us are from South Dakota. RV FOG DR has a customer base from all 50 states.

I am a "more than satisfied" customer!

I spoke to one of the companies that repair those windows. RV doctor in Searcy, Arkansas. On the side windows if they cannot be cleaned they cut a new window out and then have it tempered the last step is to get it certified by DOT so I am pretty sure that the tempering process has to be aproved by the DOT it cannot be just a regular tempered glass process.
